This colloquium has been organized by colleagues and former colleagues to mark the twentieth anniversary of this work’s publication and the year of Laurence Brockliss’s retirement. Examining the ways in which knowledge is contextualized in early modern Europe and Britain, speakers from a range of historical disciplines (classical scholarship, antiquarianism, philosophy, natural sciences) and from a variety of national perspectives will demonstrate the range of Brockliss and Jones’s impact in integrating intellectual history with other sub disciplines of history.
In Autumn 2017 the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen’s University Belfast is launching its new Centre for Public History. An interdisciplinary initiative, the Centre aims to provide a broad approach to the multi-faceted method of public history – in theory, application, and critique. This inaugural annual conference begins that task by seeking to assess the current state of the discipline. It asks a simple but vital question: in an age of ‘fake news’, ‘history wars’, and ‘impact agendas’, what role do scholars and practitioners have in shaping the relationship between the public and the place of the past?
The conference on 7th and 8th December 2017 will feature the annual Keith Jeffery Memorial Lecture, to be delivered this year by Professor Jock Phillips. Reflective keynote lectures will also be given by Professor Ludmilla Jordanova (Durham University)and Professor Peter Mandler (University of Cambridge)
Bursaries: A limited number of bursaries of £300, covering the conference fee, travel, and accommodation, are available for postgraduate and ECR (within three years of PhD) who are delivering a paper. Anyone seeking to avail of this should indicate when emailing their abstract.

The purpose of the Science Foundation Ireland Call is to support projects that encourage people of all ages and from all walks of life to be informed, inspired and involved in STEM.
Applications must clearly outline how the project will address Science Foundation Ireland’s goal to have an engaged and scientifically informed public in Ireland. An engaged public feels confident to:
- understand the role of STEM in our lives
- can judge between competing STEM arguments / engage in informed debate on STEM issues
- encourage young people to study and work in STEM
- feels engaged with STEM research
Projects should address this by showing how they:
- promote and support STEM education
- promote STEM career pathways
- increase the general public’s engagement with STEM and its importance in society
